In WealthScapes 2019, why has the net worth of certain PRIZM segments (ie. Wealthy Families, Young Singles) decreased compared to 2018?

The decline in net worth for these two segments is attributable to updates in our models for WealthScapes 2019, specifically the inclusion of new real estate data from the 2016 Census. Net worth is a calculated field incorporating total financial assets plus real estate assets less debt. A decline in real estate values for these segments is driving the observed net worth decline between vintages.
